    I worked at MicroVention full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very nice people, easy work life balance. Potential to learn a lot about the medical device industry.

    Cons

    Very incompetent managers and senior managers. Lots of people bring in family members which make it very difficult for anyone else to get promoted

    Advice to Management

    Stop the nepotism and favoritism. Training people to do bad science is a way of life that should stop now.

    Pros

    MicroVention is a very stable company.

    Cons

    No Ethics! This company hire's and promote Sr. Management that dont have a clue to what they are doing. MicroVentiion manufactures class 3 med devices. The integrity of the employees and product should be questioned. Most employees do not even speak English. Pay is below industry standard.

    I worked at MicroVention full-time

    Pros

    The people were very good to work with and the benefits were excellent. The products were interesting to work on and as a young engineer I learned a lot in a short period of time.

    Cons

    Although there were always new projects to work on, the R&D resources were limited and shared with other areas. Things did not happen as fast as they should have for this reason.

    Advice to Management

    More exposure / rotational programs available to the engineers, as the day to day can become tiring.

    Pros

    Good hours and flexibility, decent benefits. Company tries to provide well for it's employees

    Cons

    Company needs to take a breath and get in top of what they currently have. Continual growth and expansion is not good if what you already have isn't being properly managed. ERP system is a dinosaur with serious technical problems. Processes and procedures are barely in existence in practice, no one really seems to know what is the right way to get things done. Understaffed and way underpaid for the workload and in comparison to job market rates. Honestly, get your work experience and get out unless management seriously invests in properly qualified and trained employees. Benefits as stated is pro but you basically pay for those benefits with lower pay. This was actually what was said to me when I questioned the offer they gave me for the job. Took significant pay cut when converted from a temp employee to a staff employee. Regretting it now.

    Advice to Management

    Pause in the growth to get a true handle on business operations you currently have, and invest more in staffing qualified people. Moving a low level employee up to new position only works if the person actually has the skills for the job. Time with the company doesn't mean a person has the required skills. And employees are frustrated and bitter over being underpaid, overworked, and just putting out fires all day everyday.
